Radiator Guard
« on: December 04, 2018, 03:16:47 PM »
Radiator Guard.
Just waiting delivery on a Beowulf guard. Quick question if anyone has one fitted, is the foam/rubber thick enough to prevent rubbing on the rad. Have heard stories of some guards rubbing throug!! Not sure which make though.

I have the Beowulf guard fit on my 2017 also had them on my zzr's fits in 20 mins , I have had no issues with any of them but I do stick a bit extra rubber on the guards just in case, dont think any of the guards go overboard with the rubber. a bit extra protection cant do any harm

I had a guard on mine that did fibrate against the radiator and put a hole in it. when I got the radiator fixed I took a piece of an air line pipe and run the Stanley knife up the middle of it, slipped it right around the guard as I had seen this done on utube. Great job

Picked up a Beowulf at the NEC show £ 45 [ bargain ] not fitted it yet , mine has some foam
bits here and there but I will probably stick some self adhesive draft excluder on it as well
just to make sure it wont rub

remove both sides of the fairing lowers, this will give you better access.
